What is PerioLase LANAP?

PerioLase Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is the latest technology for safe and effective gum tissue restoration and periodontal tissue therapy. In 2004, PerioLase received FDA approval, which made it the only approved dental laser on the market.

In contrast to traditional periodontal surgery, PerioLase creates a sterile and stable environment where bone and tissue are able to grow back together. If you have periodontitis, you know that your gums (or connective tissue) pull away from the tooth to create pockets. The pockets become deeper as the disease progresses, and lead to bone loss.

Traditional perio-therapy involves a doctor scraping out the inside of the pockets, and trying to avoid bone loss since the infected bone will no longer grow back. Using PerioLase, a dentist is able to create an environment where your body can regenerate itself. Your gums will reattach to the tooth; in fact, it has been proven that PerioLase is the only laser to achieve a 100% success rate in tissue reconstruction.

How does PerioLase work to improve the health of my smile?

Before we begin your LANAP procedure, your teeth are thoroughly cleaned, to remove any tartar in an effort to make the tissue as healthy as possible. During your treatment, we use the PerioLase laser to find any diseased tissue in the pockets created from periodontitis. The laser kills pathogens (the bacteria which cause the disease) without harming the good cells.

What is recovery from PerioLase treatment like?

Following your procedure, you will experience less swelling or bleeding, and more comfort than with traditional periodontitis surgery. Recovery time is also faster, so you return your daily activities sooner. LANAP provides a pleasant dental experience and better outcomes than any other conventional periodontal surgery.

How do I know if PerioLase is right for me?

If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, you are most likely a candidate for PerioLase. It’s also a safe alternative to conventional surgery for people who suffer from other health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, or those who might be pregnant.

PerioLase may be recommended if you have had periodontal treatment in the past and are experiencing symptoms again. Once you have had gum disease, it is common to experience a relapse. Consider PerioLase as a safe alternative to traditional periodontal surgery, and ask our office if PerioLase LANAP is the best option for you.

DEKA Ultra Speed C02 Laser

The C02 laser is a very efficient, fast-cutting tool that seals nerve endings, kills bacteria, and is bloodless. Use of the Deka Ultra Speed CO2 laser enables us to perform several soft-tissue surgeries with no cutting, blood, or sutures.

This laser can also be used for biopsy, ablation of pre-cancerous lesion, removal of hyperplastic tissue, and cosmetic re-contouring (gingivoplasty) of the gingiva.
